The Department of Earth Sciences (www.erdw.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for a climate geologist at the full, associate or assistant professor level. An assistant professorship promotes the careers of younger scientists. The initial appointment is for four years with the possibility of renewal for an additional three-year period and promotion to a permanent position.
The successful candidate is a leading scientist investigating climates of the geological past. He or she is expected to build a vigorous research program aimed at understanding climate and climate changes on timescales from millennia to geological epochs, using geological or geochemical approaches and modern analytical techniques. Ideally, the future professor would complement existing strengths in the geosciences and climate sciences at ETH Zurich. The teaching portfolio is expected to include undergraduate classes (German or English) in Earth system sciences, sedimentology, and participation in our field program; more advanced graduate classes (English) may cover aspects of Earth's climate, Earth history, and the use of proxies for inferences about past climates.
